BMW i3 2017

The 2017 BMW i3 range of configurations is currently priced from $40,370. Our most recent review of the 2017 BMW i3 resulted in a score of 7.5 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Contributing Journalist Tim Robson had this to say at the time: The i3 is actually reasonably priced for what it is; a compact, stylish, unusual BMW product. Unfortunately, the pure electric car will be, for the foreseeable future, hamstrung by the lack of infrastructure... and a lack of interest at both a government and a corporate business level in providing said infrastructure.

BMW i3 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the BMW i3 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Range rating for electric cars?

    We're at the dawn of the electric era and waiting for an official global standard. It's not about charging the batteries but the range you get for the charge. A simple standard is being developed in Europe. I can recall the confusion when we switched away from the imperial miles per gallon standard in Australia - the economy number got smaller instead of larger when expressed in L/100 km.
